Features to Consider while Buying
Material of the drum/tub: The tub can be made of plastic, porcelain-enamel or stainless steel. The first two are cheaper. Plastic tubs are more durable than enamel ones, which can chip and rust. Stainless steel tubs are the best as they are the most durable and can withstand high spin speeds.
Most machines have preset wash programmes, such as ‘gentle wash’ for delicate clothes, and water-level options. You can customise and save favourite settings. These can be adjusted through rotary controls, a touchpad, or a touchscreen. The first type is the cheapest.
